The Alaska we all dream about: real, authentic and unashamed.
Haines, the Adventure Capital of Alaska, puts the adventure in romance. Haines offers a breathtaking place for couples to unplug and reconnect with each other. Nestled on the edge of North America’s deepest and longest fjord, just 68 nautical miles north of Juneau in Southeast Alaska, our town faces the sea and is surrounded by rivers and lakes. Craggy mountain peaks tower above a lush coastal rainforest. Bears, eagles, and whales roam free.
Your days here might begin as ours do, with espresso brewed from beans roasted in-house and end with artisan-baked bread and fresh caught wild salmon. Finish your evenings in the company of local fishermen, artists, and businessmen at a micro-brewery or distillery where you’ll be served spirits and ales flavored with wild botanicals and homegrown herbs. Fill the long daylight hours of summer with a rafting trip, a deep-sea halibut fishing charter, or a hike through an ancient spruce forest. Visit museums dedicated to our earliest residents, the Native Tlingit people, and a national favorite, the American Bald Eagle. And if you’re still up for more, explore a gold rush era fort, or find yourself alone at the end of a rocky beach trail.
Whatever you chose, there won’t be enough time to do it all. Once you’ve discovered this place, you’ll have to return.
Haines, Alaska for adventurers and lovers.
